National security adviser Robert O'Brien promised a "professional transition" with the incoming administration of President-elect Joe Biden, partly diverging from the mode in use by President Trump, who says he contests the election.

"If the Biden-Harris ticket is determined to be the winner — and, obviously, things look that way now — we'll have a very professional transition with the National Security Council, no doubt about it," O'Brien said.

The Associated Press has called North Carolina for President Trump, with its 15 electoral votes, nearly wrapping its state calls for the 2020 election. Joe Biden has already been called as the winner of the presidential race by the AP and others and has started planning his transition.

Between the call for North Carolina on Friday and AP's call on Wednesday that Trump had won Alaska, Trump now has 232 electoral votes, compared with Biden's 290. A total of 270 electoral votes is required to win the presidency.

President Trump says an emergency use authorization for Pfizer's promising new COVID-19 vaccine will come "extremely soon," delivering his first public remarks since Joe Biden was declared the winner of the presidential election last Saturday.

"Right away, millions of doses will soon be going out the door" after final approval arrives, Trump said, giving an update on his administration's efforts to accelerate coronavirus vaccine development and distribution.

President Trump has won the state of Alaska, The Associated Press reported on Wednesday, days after President-elect Joe Biden won the general White House race.

As ballots continue to be counted in the week since the election, Trump won Alaska's three electoral votes, as had been expected. The state typically supports Republican presidential candidates, but Trump's lead in polls had been smaller than usual, with the Republican nominee leading by fewer than 10 points in some recent polls.

President Trump's campaign has unleashed a multipronged legal offensive directed at states where vote counting continued Thursday based on unsupported allegations about fraud and irregularities in the election.

Attorneys for the Trump campaign sought intervention from the U.S. Supreme Court and also filed suit in Pennsylvania, Georgia and Nevada seeking remedies they hoped would help their prospects in those places. In some instances, that included requests for counting to cease altogether or at least pause for a time.

As of Friday morning ET, The Associated Press has not called the presidential race in Nevada.

Nevada, which has six Electoral College votes, went for Democrats in the past three presidential elections, though the Trump campaign has talked ambitiously about flipping it. Nevada secretary of state's elections division expects to provide an update on the voting results Thursday morning.

President Trump and Joe Biden remain locked in a tight race in Georgia, which the Associated Press has not yet called as of Friday morning Eastern time.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has won Wisconsin, adding its 10 electoral votes to his tally, according to The Associated Press.

Biden built a clear polling edge in the state over the past month, as the number of coronavirus cases has surged in the state. Both candidates visited in the days before Election Day, and it was heavily contested throughout the year.

As of Friday morning ET, The Associated Press has not yet called the presidential race in North Carolina.

The state, which carries 15 Electoral College votes, has been one of the most hard fought of the election. It was especially inundated with advertising due to its competitive Senate and gubernatorial campaigns. North Carolina went for Donald Trump by more than 3 points in 2016.

The AP has called the heavily contested state of Arizona for Joe Biden, adding 11 electoral votes and making him the first Democratic presidential nominee to win the state since Bill Clinton in 1996. The distance between both candidates has narrowed in the state, and while some media organizations have yet to call Arizona, the AP has stood by its call.

Updated at 2:36 a.m. ET: The AP called Minnesota and its 10 electoral votes for Joe Biden. The state has been reliable for Democrats, though President Trump came close to flipping it in 2016 when he trailed Hillary Clinton by just 1.5 percentage points.

The Trump campaign had long targeted Minnesota as a state to expand its possible paths to victory, though Biden maintained a sizable lead, polling at or above 50% for most of the year.

Updated at 2:39 a.m. ET: The AP called Iowa, and its 6 electoral votes, for President Trump. Iowa went for Trump by over 9 points in 2016 after voting twice for Barack Obama.

Update at 2:30 a.m. ET: The AP called Texas for President Trump early Wednesday morning ET. Its 38 electoral votes have been firmly in the GOP column for decades: Jimmy Carter was the last Democratic presidential candidate to win the state, in 1976.
